's summer mix series • from
yes, you can has hard bop now

Sometimes a man needs a break from the indie rock, and the break beats, and the dub (but never from Dub). When a man gets that way the best thing he can do, in my humble opinion, is spin some classic jazz. I'm not talking about that fusion garbage, or any of the new age stylings from Chick Corea and his ilk. I'm talking the late-big-band era thru to hard bop. 1950's to early 1960's.

For this mix I wanted to get a solid sampling of the big names that I love and that I think peeps need to hear. I only duped one name, and that is John Coltrane. He makes the list twice becuase he is a bad mamma-jamma.
